New Delhi: South Korean President Moon Jae-in is all set to visit India next month.

Sources in the know said no date had been fixed for the visit but it is most likely to take place in the first week of July.

The long-overdue visit comes close on the heels of a meeting between minister of state for external affairs General VK Singh and North Korean officials in Pyongyang.

In May, General VK Singh held discussions on a host of issues with Kim Yong Dae, vice-president of the Presidium of the Supreme People’s Assembly; Ri Yong Ho, foreign minister; Pak Chun Nam, minister of culture; and Choe Hui Chol, vice foreign minister of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea. Topics discussed included political, regional, economic, educational and cultural cooperation between the two countries.

Singh’s visit is preceded by the historic diplomatic breakthrough earlier last month when Jae-in and his North Korean counterpart Kim Jong Un signed a peace treaty to remove nuclear weapons from their backyards.

Jae-In’s visit also comes around the same time as US President Donald Trump’s meeting with Kim Jong Un in Singapore.

External affairs minister Sushma Swaraj had, in her recent annual press conference, said that while India did not intend to play the role of a mediator between the US and North Korea, it would continue to nurture its democratic ties with the former.
